Essence Magazine have announced a list of performers for one of the hottest festivals to go down in America’s Summer. With this year’s festival quickly approaching, Essence announced the lineup for this year’s show as they prepare to celebrate 25 years.
Fans can expect legends such as Missy
Elliott, Mary J. Blige, Nas, Pharrell Williams, 702, and many others to hit the
stage. However, some of music’s newest stars such as H.E.R., Queen Naija,
Normani, Jacquees, City Girls and many others will be in the building to shut
down the stage.
Like always, the Essence Festival will be
going down during the Fourth of July weekend, from July 4th-7th in New Orleans. Comedian, actress and talk-show host
Loni Love will serve as this year’s host.
